8 Map showing the zones (in green) within the city of San Francisco that are prone to liquefaction during an earthquake. Blue zones are prone to landslides. Source: Modified from California Division of Mines and Geology (2000). 8. As might be expected, the likelihood of seismically induced landslides increases with increasing earthquake magnitude, proximity to epicenter, and local shaking intensity (as measured on the Mercalli scale). Rock fall and slides, as well as soil slides, slumps, and avalanches, are among the most common types of earthquake‐related landslides (Keefer, 2002).
While there were no structures damaged during the formation of the new Fire Island inlet, that is unfortunately not always the case.

Ideally, recharge by precipitation or melting snow will keep pace with ground water withdrawal from wells. Otherwise, conditions known as overdraft, overpumpimg, or groundwater mining may develop, leading to depletion of the resource and possible scarcity. The productivity of the vast grain fields of the American Middle West has been increasingly sustained by irriga tion, which taps into the High Plains aquifer system (also known as the Ogallala aquifer) stretching from Texas to South Dakota.
